I was fascinated by the insights into Akha culture, and the complex world of tea production, as I read this well-written novel. Ultimately, this was a very satisfying novel.

I really enjoyed the characters in this novel - hard to believe this was Morrissey's first. Her turn of phrase is lovely too; she has a strong ear for the local dialect.

Well done.

Thirteen Ways of Looking by Colum McCann
Thirteen Ways of Looking
by Colum McCann (Goodreads Author)

Clear rating
This novella and collection of short stories have left me with lots to think about. McCann has presented his readers with more questions than answers here, and as done so in a style that is often very beautiful. What a wordsmith he is!
